The Jerusalem Post reports: The Israel Navy on Thursday released footage from a recent training exercise in which two missile ships downed an out of use naval vessel.

Capt. Ziv Rom, commander of the Navy’s Third Flotilla described the exercise:”This scenario took place on the northern front, where we located an enemy vessel and destroyed it as quickly as possible.”

Rom said that the Harpoon anti-ship missiles were fired from great range, “almost from the maximum range of a missile ship.”
